making me happy


1. The nexus of the three surfaces beneath my feet in the above photo.
2. These Pregnancy Announcements. My cheeks hurt from laughing with Jamie Anne.
3. Feist writes a note and Feist does a fun live show. (Via Frolic and Les, respectively.)
4. The Case of the Beady-Eyed Binky Caper.
5. Discovering an unused Christmas gift certificate to Nordstrom. It's burning a hole in my pocket. I'm currently eying these. Am wishing I had a gift certificate for these.
6. Wilco on Letterman last night.
7. Lane went swimming in Elizabeth Taylor's pool. Or was at least invited to.
8. "We come in doing cartwheels" and other brilliant phrases that make up "Australia."
9. I get to go to Idaho again. Hurrah! And get one more Saturday.
10. Stormy skies in the forecast.

Wishing all an un-laborious Labor Day. Cheers to you!

Ok those pregnancy announcements were HILARIOUS!! At first I thought you meant Jamie Anne was prego...

Who the heck is Pioneer Woman? She's a riot!

Let's just get things clear here...I am definitely NOT pregnant! But if I were (which I'm not), it is entirely possible that I would be laughing about it, wondering how in the world a person like me could possible carry, birth, and then raise a wee one!

Love your pic! And, thanks for the head's up on Wilco... we caught half of it, but it was, still, a very good half to watch.

Enjoy your weekend!

Don't you love the random, unexpected find? Sometimes I wish I could deliberately plan and forget something only to find it months later as a treat.

Nice pic--I LOVE the dress :) Is that the temple grounds, perchance?

Those pregnancy announcements are HIlarious. I can just hear Jamie reading them and hooting like she does.
